4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Guide for The 40+ Dater, July 7, 2010
This review is from: Finding The Right Man For You: Dating Advice for Women (Perfect Paperback)
Danks offers a very comprehensive guide to dating today, especially geared to people who are dating again after many years. You may well discover an approach you never thought of. He is very encouraging for those who need it and offers tremendous detail about being successful with online dating, not too surprising since this is how he met his wife. Having recently dated after many years and also written a book from the experience, I agree with much of his advice, particularly around trying lots of different methods.

I do think online dating works better for men who are serious about having a serious relationship than it does for women, because most women on these sites are serious, where many men are not. I also found Danks' advice about dating younger men a bit naive. It's not the women who need to be encouraged to date younger men, but the men who need to accept dating an older woman. I had much better luck meeting men within five years of my age either way in person than I did online, because in person they thought I was ten years younger than I am. Generally speaking, I found most men want to date younger women, so when younger men saw my age, they didn't initiate contact or reply.

Ladies, these are not major points. Read this book and use his ideas. If you want to date someone about your age, just try to keep your age confidential (but don't lie, that never works).
